ugh, I saw it coming. Really hope Pep brings on Fernandinho or somebody before the 2nd half starts, we need somebody to shore up the defence.

GOD EXISTS AND IS BLUE



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first. 

Fuck! It wasn't even that close, we just weren't good tonight.

Congrats to Chelsea though, they were the better team and deserved to win the trophy tonight. It's a bit of an FU to PSG too, they sacked Tuchel after he couldn't win the Champions League with them and then he goes on to win it with Chelsea instead. Plus, what a story Kante has had. Was playing in the French lower leagues for awhile, now he's one almost all of the biggest trophies in the game, I'm happy for him, and with the way he plays he absolutely deserves it too!



Chelsea were the lesser of two terrible evils, so I'm glad they won.



Pep's tricky CL rodeo continues. This time it was a backline + attacking mids and winger, no striker or defensive mid. A bit of a fraud this guy is really. If it wasn't for $$$ I doubt he'd be so special. 

And the worst thing is, our manager is a similar brainiac but without the endless money. We're doomed.

Dunno if Chelsea is any lesser evil, two of the worst teams for football. There was no happy outcome.

The first two teams to pull out of the european super league (and who were apprehensive about joining in the first place), are the worst two teams for football? I didn't know you were pro-super league.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Still, it's incredibly ironic that people complain about "non-traditional" teams winning things and competing for the best players, but also complain about a competition thats purpose is to make it nigh impossible for anybody new to ever compete with an "elite" group of clubs. It's kind of contradictory.

Plus I'd definitely rather have teams like Man City and Chelsea make the Premier League interesting, than for it to be like the Bundesliga where there's not really much point watching it because you know Bayern will just win in the end anyway.



So Chelsea - Villarreal for the Super Cup, that's another fixture I always wanted to watch. At this point Chelsea - Cruz Azul for the World Club Cup final is also possible, I'd lose my shit if that happened.

Going forward, I don't expect a lot from Chelsea, but fighting for the title would be appreciated, but I doubt it'll happen, the team just doesn't have the right players. Nonetheless, it's wonderful that they have another orejona in their showcase, I never would have bet for them to win the Champions this season.

The issue isn't with non-traditional teams winning things, it's with these teams rising to the top by spending a fuckton of money they never earned on the pitch. No one has beef with Leicester winning the Premier League, because they did so on merit.

Chelsea and Manchester City only are what they are because of their billionaire owners throwing money at the club. You can't deny that. Out of these two, Chelsea at least has a bit more tradition, which is why most were rooting for them today, but they definitely wouldn't have gotten there without russian money.

So, it's not incredibly ironic at all. People don't like Chelsea and Manchester City (and PSG) for the same reason they didn't like the Super League - because they don't like it when money rules the game.

Anyways.

Glad to see Man City lose it. Not so glad that Chelsea is the alternative, but it is what it is I suppose. Lesser evil for me.
